Full description

Discover the famous Taj Mahal at sunrise on this guided tour. Choose a private tour with a delicious breakfast at a hotel or a group tour and explore Agra Fort, the Baby Taj, and the Taj Mahal.

Begin your day with an early 3:00 AM pickup from your hotel in Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, or the airport. Drive to Agra, enjoying a peaceful 3-hour ride in either a private or shared air-conditioned car.

Arrive in Agra at 6:00 AM and meet with your tour guide before proceeding to visit the Taj Mahal. Explore the Taj Mahal whilst enjoying its sunrise views, spending around 2-3 hours in the mausoleum.

Continue to Agra Fort, built by the Great Mughal Emperor "Akbar". Spend around an hour exploring this sight before stopping at a 5* hotel for a delicious breakfast (costs included depending on the option).

Next, if you are not in a hurry and also want to explore more, visit Itimad-Ud-Daulah (Baby Taj). At 10:00 AM, drive back to New Delhi, and at 1:00 PM you will arrive back at your point of origin or Delhi Airport.

We had Aaimer as our guide. He was very knowledgeable and sweet. Explained everything in detail and always was attentive. Our first time in India, and visiting the Taj Mahal was a must. Luckily we got him as a guide and he was able to give us good pointers and take amazing pictures. Naresh our driver was excellent, drove carefully and as well was very sweet. Would definitely recommend both of them, such sweet men.

This is my third visit to the Taj Mahal, but I hired a guide for the first time. The result was a great success! It was so good. I was nervous about the pick-up at the hotel at 2:30 in the middle of the night, but the driver came to the hotel lobby to pick me up. A drive-in on the way? It was also interesting in Indian local. In Agra, we were picked up by our guide at the Marriott Hotel. He speaks Japanese very well and his English is perfect. He gave a detailed explanation of the Taj Mahal. They fulfilled all my requests and even took me to a cheaper shop when I wanted a kurta. Recommended for Japanese people too!
